Penned in the Margins is a London-based literary arts company, producing new work live, in print and online. Collaborating with writers, artists and creative partners to test new ideas and explore alternative stories. We welcome three outstanding and original poets from this award-winning publisher to Sheffield for this event.
Kate Davis lives in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. Her poems have been implanted in audio-benches, sung throughout a 12-hour tide cycle, embroidered on clothes, remixed by a sound artist and printed on shopping bags. The Girl Who Forgets How to Walk is a magical realist exploration of memories and myth, set against Cumbrian landscapes.
Rebecca Tamás is a London-born poet currently living in York, where she is Lecturer in Creative Writing at York St John University. In 2018 she co-edited the anthology Spells: 21st Century Occult Poetry (Ignota) with Sarah Shin. Witch (a Poetry Book Society choice) is an occult exploration of the feminine that is dark, witty and philosophical, somehow both ancient and strikingly modern.
Raymond Antrobus is a British-Jamaican poet, performer, editor and educator, born and bred in Hackney. His poetry has appeared on BBC 2 and BBC Radio 4 and in the Guardian. The Perseverance was a 2018 Poetry Book of the Year for both the Guardian and the Times and he was a Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellow in 2017.
